Rosada Fashion Outlet, which is owned by Resolution Property and operated by Stable International, is home to more than 100 retailer brands. Phase II provides an additional 45 units, plus 900 new car spaces with direct access from a multi-storey car park into the centre itself.

Rosada is conveniently located close to the Belgian border, with only a 30-minute drive from Rotterdam. The Phase II expansion is expected to enlarge the catchment area from 60 to 90 minutes.
Around 80% of the total space in Rosada Fashion Outlet is already let and negotiations are on-going with leading brands. New brands signed on for Phase II include Adidas, Calvin Klein, Guess, Haribo, Skechers, River Woods Kids and Brax, This brings the total number of national and international brands in Rosada to over 100.
Michel Nangia at Resolution Property said: “Phase II of Rosada is Resolution’s first major fashion outlet development extension and contributes to the growth of our retail portfolio. We are currently in talks with major brands for further lettings. We committed to the extension project ahead of other schemes within the catchment, putting us ahead of the competition.”
Gerben Boomsma, Director at Stable International said: “The new 8,000 sqm extension is intended to provide a more diverse experience with a broader brand portfolio to increase dwell time and turnover. This is the opportunity to market the centre in a larger catchment.”
Since its acquisition by Resolution in late 2012, Rosada has seen 37 new lettings and 10 lease renewals, representing 45% of its gross lettable area.
